    I worked at Rite Aid part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    20% discount, knowing about the deal/couponers, flexibility in hours, friendships created, strengthening my own skills, experiences

    Cons

    minimum wage pay for whole two years working there, short staffed- often skipping class to come in, toxic coworkers - micromanagement by several "supervisors", 10 minute breaks, grouchy customers, etc.

    Advice to Management

    I truly enjoyed being a cashier at Rite Aid. Work attitude depends on management style. Luckily, I had the best manager. Flexible with hours, as a student this is important, as schedules change each term. The store ran smoothly despite being busy most of the time, and having irresponsible coworkers who, would not show up at all, and they would eventually quit. A typical day, depending what shift/day of the week basically would be ringing customers up, customer service, or/and on the floor facing, stocking, setting displays, bottle counts.... The workplace is what you make it!! Your attitude, your response to situations, determine your perspective on your job.
